*Ohio University*

These words can be found on the marker at the Ohio University Class Gateway:
“Religion, morality, and knowledge being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.”
Well,
God knows that it is necessary to find happiness.
And the promise of our college experience isn’t dependent on the government and is not limited to just our education.
We encourage all graduating high-school seniors to come to Athens.
Our generation has been called the Voices of Promise,
So believe when we tell you your life will forever be changed.
But these moments won’t last forever.

So our mortality conflicts with our morality.

Now let’s party.
